Description

"If you're searching the horror horizon for a dark star, your next must-read, the silhouette you see coming your way is Jonathan Janz." - Josh Malerman, New York Times best selling author of Bird Box and Malorie

Fearing that mankind is heading toward nuclear extinction, a group of geneticists unleash a plot to save the world. They've discovered that mythological creatures such as werewolves, vampires, witches, and satyrs were once real, and that these monstrous genetic strands are still present in human DNA. These radical scientists unleash the bestial side of human beings that had been dormant for eons, and within months, most people are dead, and bloodthirsty creatures rule the earth. Despite the fact that Dez McClane has no special powers, he is determined to atone for the lives he couldn't save and to save the woman he loves. But how long can a man survive in a world full of monsters?

Review quote

"Fast paced and eminently readable, The Raven is a violent, post-apocalyptic, fantasy adventure with an intriguing premise and a likeable protagonist." -- The Book Beard "One of the best writers in modern horror to come along in the last decade. Janz is one of my new favorites." -- Brian Keene "Janz brings a truly original perspective on the apocalypse and monsters and does it well in such a way that, given today's technological advances, doesn't seem that far-fetched at all." -- Splattergeist "If you're searching the horror horizon for a dark star, your next must-read, the silhouette you see coming your way is Jonathan Janz." -- Josh Malerman, New York Times best selling author of Bird Box and Malorie "A perfect choice for fans of horror-sf hybrids, such as Rebecca Roanhorse's "Sixth World" series or Josh Malerman's "Bird Box" novels." "Mr. Janz has a fine eye for the layers of personality and character usually hidden from the world." -- The Haunted Reading Room "At times, the book feels closer to Lee Child than Stephen King, with its monsters indulging in car chases and bar brawls, and all of the action is perfectly controlled by Janz. It's a fun, rapid read that should whet the reader's appetite for the future installments that the ending hints at." "The Raven is a melting pot of several favorite sub-genres and tropes resulting in the best possible mash-up a horror fan could even imagine."
